I suppose it is no big surprise that back in the early 70's I had a Dawn doll. I loved that doll. Up until then I was a big fan of Barbie. I remember sitting in our big bedroom closet with my sister playing Barbie dolls. My mother often reminds me of all the Barbie clothes she knit for me that I gave away. I still have guilt over that!!!
Back to Dawn. Dawn was about half the size of Barbie and quite stunning. My sister and I had several of the dolls. I used to think I was quite the seamstress and try to "sew" clothes for her since Barbie's clothes were just too big. I don't know what happened to my Barbies and Dawn dolls. I suppose they are in the big playroom in the sky by now :)
About a year ago I was in a local pharmacy (CVS) and I came across a Dawn doll. There wasn't even a question about it, so I bought it! I was thinking how nice it would be to give to Mackenzie when she was older. Mackenzie however would rather have some of the old trucks and trains I had that are gone to the great beyond as well. Someday if her tastes in toys change Dawn will be here waiting for her.
